Windows XP.  PPPoE setup is done almost the same way a dial-up is created.

  • Windows XP:  Start, Control Panel, Network Connections (you may have to switch to Classic View or go through Network and Internet to get to Network Connections). 
  • Click on Create a New Connection.  Next. Next again.
  • Set up my connection manually, Next.
  • Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password.  Next, 
  • ISP name is TurboNet (this is not critical).  Next.  Enter the username and password.
  • If this is a laptop, un-check the box that says to make this your default connection.  Next.
  • You'll probably want to put a shortcut on the desktop (check the checkbox), then Finish.
